Carergivers are the unpaid loved ones who provide support, physical and emotional care care to the cancer patient. This maybe for a few hours a week or all day every day. They often experience caregiver stress and can be vulnerable to changes in their own health due to juggling their lives, looking after the patient and their responsibilities too.
Don’t forget to ask how they are too! Offering occasionally to help out can just mean sitting with the patient while the caregiver steps out for a cup of coffee or shopping. A simple gesture can make a big difference.
